About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This property is perfect for families on vacation, friends who want to get together, or couples who want a great place to get away for a romantic holiday. We have recently had a family on sabbatical from a university located in cold country; they were here for 6 months, enrolled their children in the local schools to learn Spanish, and are reluctantly heading back to snow!

Fun shopping in Ensenada or at La Bufadora, much less hustle and bustle. Then come home, light the gas fire, watch the city lights and sip a little wine or a nice cup of tea.

About Linda Sanders

We have lived here, on and off, for over 25 years and still find it ideal. The weather is great, the ocean is ever changing, the people are terrific and the choices of things to do is never ending. We bought this property as a rental and our eventual home (first we have to pay it off!) and we live just down the street.

Linda Sanders purchased this house in 2007

Why Linda Sanders chose Lengüeta Arenosa

Punta Banda is a perfect family beach area; the beach is shallow for quite a way, the waves are gentle and occasionally even offer something for surfers. Our family has enjoyed vacations here for years and we hope other families can have the same experience. But, this is not just a 'family' house, it's a great place for that reconnection weekend you and your significant other have talked about for ages, it's a fun house to entertain friends, great for house parties (notice, we did not say 'drunken brawls') and it's the perfect place to visit alone when you're stressed out from the normal world. We can feel cares slipping away as we cross the border.

What makes this house unique

We love ending the day with a glass of wine on one of the two the decks overlooking the ocean, going out early in the morning to watch the sunrise over the estuary, bike riding along the beach and watching people just kicking back and enjoying life. The fireplace provides a cozy spot on cooler days, and big glass doors open to allow breezes to flow through on warmer days. The beach is perfect for our grandchildren, who are now ages 4 months to 23 years -- hard to beat that! Dolphins in the evenings, pelicans all day, sea gulls scrapping overhead, little skittering birds along the water all provide entertainment. For some world class meals, Ensenada is close by. Local restaurants come and go and some are perfect for a day after the beach. They currently offer everything from good Mexican food to pizza to fish so fresh that it smiles up at you. If you want to do nothing, there are movies to watch on the DVD player, books galore to read in the 'library' aka the bunk room, and lots of places for navel gazing and contemplation! We are available anytime should you need information or a fast repair or toilet paper or whatever.

Beautiful and comfy beach house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our short stay.

Property is well taken cared of and loved, sparkling clean. It feels like a real home.

House is very well designed with a large open downstairs area, great kitchen, comfy living room and big dining table. Big glass doors that open widely to let in the sea breeze and enjoy the views under roof. You can just hang out there and on the terraces and feel yourself as if sitting on the beach, with just a few steps to the ocean.

Upstairs room is huge with nice balcony and great views.

Large outside area surrounding the garage with shower and hose to wash off humans and dogs.

We enjoyed our stay with friends and our dogs, wish it was longer to have used the kayaks, we didn't get around to that.

Owner a few houses down the block and available when needed. Otherwise totally hands off and relaxed which is also appreciated.

Thank you Linda. We may come again!

Excellent property! Right on the beach. We had an amazing time.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous house right on the beach! We had plenty to do. Men went fishing and the ladies went to Las Cañadas (zip line, wave pool, etc). La Bufadora is very close. We were there within a few minutes. We enjoyed staying at the house one of the days. Spent the day at the beach with family. Perfect weekend

Great house on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our family’s vacation. The view of the beach from the upstairs balcony is amazing! And there is a lot of light from the windows downstairs to enjoy the view as well. The house is right on the beach and it was nice to start and end our days with walks on the sand.

Very quiet neighborhood, felt very safe. Close to La Bufadora and about a 30-45 min drive into downtown Ensenada. We didn’t mind the drive but keep it in mind if you want to be closer to the center of town. We drove to La Bufadora, downtown Ensenada, a fun zip-line/water park and Valle de Guadalupe. All doable trips from the house.

Linda provides drinking water and the house has lots of towels, kitchen supplies, even some games and puzzles for the kids. Bedding was comfortable and there were plenty of blankets. Kids liked giving the kayaks a try and we were happy to find the natural hot springs on the beach a few hundred yards down from the house!

We will be back!

Great place to stay. The house is right on the beach. The kids absolutely loved the kayaks. The house is close to La Bufadora, so it makes a perfect location.

The wine country is just north of Ensenada, about an hour's drive away. It's a beautiful drive, lots of wineries to see and lots of wine to buy. Tide pools and mini hot spring close by. Bring your canoe or boat, jet ski, or Seadoos (sp?). La Bufadora is 15 minutes away, local health center offers yoga and other eastern style exercises, as well as massages that have everyone raving about them. Daily Zumba classes also held locally.During August, the Vendimia, a yearly wine festival with numerous events revolving around food and wine, are extremely popular; many sell out early. Golf is available at the Baja Country Club, a 20 minute drive and at Bajamar, about an hour north of Ensenada. Tide pools and a natural hot spring are close by; you can walk down, take a shovel and make your own hot tub! Take the kids to Las Cañadas water park (google it!) for water sports and zip lining . . . adult friendly as well!
